My Portfolio


I had the pleasure of serving as the Digital Marketing Manager at Condé Nast Johansens for almost a year. My husband’s job is now taking us away from London, and I wanted to remember the incredible people I met and the places I was fortunate enough to write about during my time running the editorial content for the brand.
